Penelope Bisbee was born in Fort Knox, Kentucky and now lives and works in Dallas, Texas. Her father was an officer in the military, so as a wee child she lived in Kentucky, Germany, Virginia, and then Texas.
She earned her MFA in Painting and Intermedia from Texas Woman’s University in 2008. Her BFA is from the University of Texas at Arlington. Currently, she is teaching Painting I/II, Drawing I/II and Art Appreciation as an adjunct instructor at Tarrant County College and Richland College.
When she’s not teaching, she spends her time working on her paintings, volunteering as an environmental and political activist, thinking about horses, and carving out time to work on a nascent art park on family land in Knox County, Texas.
